Delicious Japanese

Staff were nice, food was delicious. Definitely will come back. The bill was surprisingly small. Portions quite big for a Japanese so you might want to order a bit less than usual.

We visited late on Saturday night but we received a very warm welcome. We asked for advice on which sushi to choose and our waiter was very helpful. All the food was extremely well cooked and fresh. Great value and will definitely visit again.

Been here more than 10 times. Sometimes good and sometimes bad. The lady serving is really rude. The middle age guy seems to know more,young guy has no damn clue about anything and the old guy is rude as heck. Honestly food is good, nest Japanese food available in Portsmouth.

My Partner and I are regulars at Sakura and it is consistently delicious and always busy. There is a vast selection of sushi to choose from and it always tastes fresh., just be careful with the Wasabi in there is it nearly blew my head off!

Chose this as I was staying in South Sea for my birthday with hubby and a friend. I have only ever eaten in a japenese restaurant before in Guernsey and loved that so was very happy to find this local to where we were staying. We decided to walk as only 15 mins. We were lucky to have rung on... More

couldn't believe it was 3 minutes from my house! ordered mixed nagri and soko yaba noodles! Very authentic and minimal which is what is so good about Japanese cuisine. Every detail is predetermined and thought over!
